exploring the mix of fun, fitness & health…as a diabetic

Double Icing

Last night I got ::smacked:: in the face with a soccer ball. Not in some cool head-butting-absorb the shock with my body to control the ball sort of way but in full blast too close to tell it’s coming at you….

{for the record: I did not get knocked down}

But it was cool – it took away from the fact I’ve had kink in the other side of my neck since Saturday and wasn’t turning my head to the left anyways.
{perhaps I should look into new pillows??}
While I didn’t play my best game, our team still kicked it (ha!) and we won!
Undefeated, that’s right. 
I still haven’t figured out this whole late night game, sort of snack-sort of dinner, a little insulin but not too much, maybe a snack after the game deal.
The past two weeks I ran my blood-sugars high, this week I decided to be a little less conservative and aim for a good balance.
And than I woke up low.
So much for that 3 mile run.
This whole blogging thing isn’t going to work if I keep on putting it out there & jinxing myself.
And while I didn’t get to run, my blood-sugars ran low all day long
(oh that’s just bad – I should go to bed). 
So lesson: tomorrow I will be cutting back on the long acting insulin.
And schedule a doctor’s appointment. And look into a sports nutritionist ?
The good news is that I took todays “rest” day as an “icing” day. As I’m currently icing my left knee & right groin and had a heating pack on my shoulder/neck.
I really get my money’s worth out of those things.
